Serene, earthy with a touch of sophistication describes the white cinder block house at the far end of Flite Acres Road. The cinder block was built in 1964 by Ja Wahrmund, the developer of Flite Acres East. The current owners appreciate Ja Warmund's simple but livable house design as well as the selection of the lot the house sits on.
The location on the Blanco River is quiet with views both directions that are stunning and unique. It feels like country but is only minutes from downtown Wimberley. The owners have learned, through old photographs, that the property today, after the flood of 2015, looks more like it did in the 60s, when the house was built. Old photographs reveal open space much like today with small cypress trees just beginning to grow.
The design, remodeling, and furnishing of the house was done by Michaux Thomas of Michaux Inc. She is a designer and friend that has worked with the current owners on 3 other homes over the years. The interior color scheme was chosen to reflect and connect with the nature seen from every room in the house.
Pecan bark and light greens of the river create a restful and con- templative space emphasizing the light and airy feel. The consistent color scheme throughout lends to the serene, simple yet sophisticated space.
The house was purchased 8 years ago and was originally updated to be a weekend home, removing fake brick linoleum flooring from the 70s, dark paneled walls to reveal the cinder block beneath and orange shag carpet. Following the 2015 flood the homeowners decided to make the house a full time residence and remodeled with new cabinetry, finishes, electrical and plumbing fixtures, appliances and unique furnishings, rugs and art.
